Keeks- Sorry I haven't checked the forum out for a while. I'm 39 wks now and I'm 4 centimeters and still 50 % effacted. My dr said my cervix is quite favorable and thinks I will have a wonderful normal delivery. So he will induce me on 23rd unless I go into labor on my own. So I'm ciked it's nice to have a light at the end of the tunnel. How is your lil man?

Joyce- Thank you......I'm so excited I can't wait to see him and feel better...LOL!

Hugs,
AP

kate.... yes the week without the older kids was nice and quiet...and to be honest, it went way too fast...lol

well daniel slept in his crib from 1am to almost 9 am this morning... whoo hoo.. doesnt mean that he will do this on a nightly basis...but it is a start.

when i have him on my lap, he puts his feet on my legs and tries to stand.. strong legs
he will sit on my lap with his head cradled on my arm... and will sit up, he has a very strong neck too... not sure of his weight/length yet...the nurse from the health dept will be here NEXT friday... so she will weigh him and check his length...lol i am not sure i want to know....lol

last night i laid him in his crib longway... and he got up this morning laying across his crib with his head down...lol... i tried the positioner, but he wiggles out of it... so no point in doing that...lol

went to court on the 7th on hunter, should get something in the mail in the next few days to find out the referee's recommendations... hopefully it is in my favor.. the only thing that they are pushing is "childs preference" and i am hoping that it doesnt weigh much on it... i am kinda hoping it just goes to trial in front of the judge.  if the referee recommends that custody be changed in my ex's favor i am going to be filing a objection AND hopefully be able to get a legal aide attorney then...ugh!!!

anyhow i will try to keep posted a little better, but it is difficult to say the least...lol
have a great day ladies hugs and luv to all of you and your babies

hello ladies... well MY daniel is 6 weeks old now, and although i am not sure what his weight it at the moment, should be getting him weighed on the 23rd... and he has his 2 mo appt. on the 27th... NOT looking forward to the first shots.  i have been able to wear some of my pre-preggo jeans since about 4 weeks post partum...which makes me feel good.  I went into my surgeons office, she sent me for a ct scan... and apparently my OB did such a good job closing me up, from the c-section that i am not gonna have to have my hernia repair unless it reoccurs.... hopefully it wont.

my older kids have spent the last week at summer camp, boy did THIS week go by FAST...lol... they will be home sometime between 1-2 this afternoon.  the camp has a website and i was able to save pictures that were taken during the week... it is really cool and i hope i can send them next summer too.

the breastfeeding/pumping didnt go well, i stopped and went too 100% formula at about 4 weeks... but that is ok, cause i am also writing now, for a online website, and i just dont have time to pump every 2 hours to get my supply where it needs to be.  Daniel does not like his baths very much... which is odd cause my other kids LOVED thier baths, but every baby is differant.  Daniel i believe has started teething, and from what i can tell, it almost feels like he is cutting his eye/stomach teeth instead of his front teeth... the reason i think he is teething(aside from him being baby 4) is that he is drooling alot and will scream at times like he is in pain... so i rub his gums with oragel, and then give him gas drops (in case it is a burp that is stuck) and then give him a slight amount of baby tylenol in case it is his teeth... and it only takes a couple minutes and then he calms down... so i am seriuosly thinking it is his teeth...lol

so glad everyone and thier babies are doing well... i am just so busy i dont find time to comment on here or facebook (whoo hoo it is loading properly again...lol)

anyhow hope all is going well and i will update after he gets weighed... i am gonna guess that in 2 weeks he will be almost 15 lbs...lol... he is a big boy, i need to take more pics and post them... lol

Jamie, it's so good to hear from you!  Angel is such a cutie!  Good to hear your twins are starting to do a bit more on their own with potty training.  

Yes, Daniel is a big boy!  He's at that stage where he is still pre-creeping/crawling, and gets mad if you put him down when he needs something, but he's so big he gets heavy fast!  I'm convinced I'm already back to my original strength just from carrying him around all over the house.  :O)

Oh, and an update.... Angel will be 7 months on the 16th, she is now sitting up by herself, and crawling around and getting into things now.... She is still teething, she has been teething since birth really since she was born with that tooth, and doctor says its good and solid and it won't be falling out... Well eventually, but not until that time comes when she is loosing teeth=) which is good for me because I don't want her to teeth for that damn thing and then it fall out and teeth all over again.
Gabriel is doing pretty good on the potty. He wears a pull up at nap time and bed time, and wears underwear during the day. Jakey will ask to go potty a few times a day, but I won't be worrying about him until fall unless he shows more signs of being ready... Gabriel started to do a full uturn when I attempted potty training for Jake. So, I stopped because it wasn't worth Gabriel having as many accidents as what he was.

Daniel was 4 months old the 4th of July, yay!  I hate how fast time goes.  
He had his 4 month appointment yesterday.  He is 27" long (95th %) weight is 17 lbs 10 3/4 oz (90th %) and then his hat size is 16 1/2" (50th %).  :)  He is mommy's big boy for sure!  Still exclusively bfing- it's going really well.  :)  Pumping at work and feeding from the source at home.  

How is everyone else doing?  Some babies are going to be a year old soon, right?  Like yours Krissyy...!  Next month, right?  I can't believe it!!!! :D

Love you all!

keeks... well to answer one question.. no his dad has not contacted me to even ask about him.... nursing was taking too much time as he wouldnt take the breast so i was pumping all the time, and i just couldnt keep it up.  but other than that everything is going well.  i will get some newer pics soon, but the most recent ones are just last week.
kids love him, and yes they are pretty good about helping most of the time...

AP.. wow i cant believe you are that far along already... your lil guy is going to be here before you know it... keep us posted

my facebook has FINALLY been loading so i did post new pics on there as well... i will have to keep up a little bit better

Armyprincess ~ WOW 37 weeks already!

AP can not believe you are so close to having your lil one...  i would push the doctors to give you some kind of hint at least as to what they want you to do.. and explain to them what your concerns are.  they cant reassure you if they dont know what you are worried about.  regardless of what way you have this wonderful bundle, the main thing is that you deliver a healthy baby...... dont stress too much.. i know the end of pregnancy can be a pain in the behind, but if you have someone to wait on you, enjoy it and take advantage of it

good luck and update us as soon as you have that lil bundle of joy

How are you? I'm 37 wks now and I have progressed as of last wk I was 2-3 and 50 % effaced I'm now 3 centimeters as of yesterday! I will have an u/s next wk to check the weight of the baby and hopefully get an idea of what my dr wants to do if I will be induced or wait and go on my own. I have had 2 c-sections and a vbac. My first was a c-section after being in labor for 43 hrs. He was so big. My 2nd was 8 lbs she was my vbac and my baby was a planned c-section due to all the pg complications I had this pg my dr wants me to have a v-bac due to all the post partum complications I had both of my c-sections! I saw a hematologist and they just have no idea what is causing the bleeding and then over clotting! So now it's like ok I'm fine with having a vbac but I know my body can't handle huge babies so the more I wait the bigger he gets. I'm not against having a csection either but why keep me waiting I will end up having one. Yikes. This is the first baby I dont' have a plan. Usually by now I had some idea of when I would be induced! I'm extremely uncomfortable it's hard to walk and I'm having severe cramping! Ouch. Hopefully it will be over soon! How are you doing how is your lil man? Keep in touch...

Take care,
AP

I think both my kids had something like that in their mouth..... It was awful time, they were not sleeping and they both had it at the same time. They were so hungry, and at first I didn't understand why they cried everytime they ate, until I saw inside their mouth and saw all those sores and stuff. Then the doctor said its like a yeast infection in their mouth, and I am thinking oh yuck! I guess it was pretty painful for them.

An another time my kids had the same thing, but it was an allergic reaction to the meds they were on. Kids are great aren't they=). Angel is finally somewhat getting better. She is going to be 6 months here soon, she loves to crawl and move around its funny.

thrush is a yeast infection in a baby...but doc says she isnt sure that is what it is...sooo just wait and see i guess. lol at his appt yesterday he weighed in at 8lb 14oz... 2 weeks old today WOW...goes by so fast. hasnt lost umbilical cord yet but should be soon. sleeping a lil better at night..IF i can keep him up more during day.

i am able to pump about 1 oz in 5-10 minutes now...so supply is getting better... but still having to suppliment throughout the day with formula... Daniel will latch most of the time when i put him to breast as long as he is not really hungry... cause that just makes him angry and he gets frustrated and such... i try to put him to breast at least 2-4 times a day when we are home... and then i TRY to pump every 2-3 hours... it gets really old really fast... and it is boring too... lol... not too sure how long i am gonna be able to keep this up if he doesnt start taking the breast more often cause the pumping really stinks...lol
oh well the things we do for our children. at least he is getting breastmilk in some form or another... lol
anyhow i will try to update with new pics soon... hugs and luv to you all

oh jamie... so sorry to hear that angel's teething isnt getting any better... and that she might have a cold on top of it.

daniel has thrush i think, and his lil bottom is on fire... i have been using lanolin to try to sooth his lil bottom.

but other than that and his sister spoiling him rotten where he HAS to be held at night in order to sleep... all is going well.
i have started pumping so that my milk supply can go up... as i am trying to get him to nurse... he is 10 days old already and it is mind boggling how fast time goes.

anyhow i will keep updating when i get a chance... hugs and luv to you all

I am hoping so too!! this is going on way too long and I just dont' sleep at night because Angel is up every 5-30 minutes at night time because her teeth and now she has a cold I think... the runny nose and cough could be from teething too, who knows!! It is all one big guessing game that I just haven't or will ever figure it out lol

Joyce ~ Congrats On your little boy! I wrote on your facebook wall, but I wanted to come on here & post something too :) Sure are alot of Daniels in our little group now :) Kati's little cutie pie & Krissy Husband! What a small world LOL....What made you decide on Daniel? Were you able to take back the pink stuff? or did you have to make do?....Hes absolutely adorable!....He was quite the little chunker but sounds like he came out perfect & healthy!!!!....How are you doing recovery wise? everything working out okay?....What about Daniels dad? Has he seen him yet?....Hope everything is going good!....Sorry to hear he isnt much of a night sleeper! I hope that changes quickly!!!!

Jamie ~ Have you ever heard of Camila? You should look into , we sell it at our walmart & superstore & also at health food stores , its an all natural teething pain reliever , it comes in a box with 30 little viles that they drink , they work AWESOME! I give them to Rylen all the time , there isnt anything in them that can harm them or become addictive , and they work fast , within about 10 minutes , I hope you can find them , they come in a white & blue box....The brand is Borion.....Hopefully her & Jake feel better soon!!!

Princess ~ Glad to hear you are all doing well! Ollie is so freakin cute!....Hows he doing with starting to walk & all that?? Does he crawl alot?...Rylen kinda skipped crawling , he pretty much walks now , not alone , he walks the furniture but we have a pretty small condo so he can easily get most places he wants to go by going from piece of furniture to furniture , hes a climber now too , tries to climb everything!! Hes gonna be a handful for sure lol.....The anti-depressants are working WONDERFULY! I feel so normal again & so less irritated and anxious! The anti depressants im on also help with anxiety which is good because now I dont have to be on 2 different pills :)

Armyprincess ~ Thats weird they would let you leave being dilated? I wasnt allowed to do anything even at 34 weeks with a short cervix? Odd....hopefully you get into your doctor and figure out whats going on!....The doctors told me from 25 weeks my son would be born early , they were all amazed when I made it to 36 weeks & shocked when I made it 38 let alone 39 weeks ( which is when my son was born)....so you never know , I had like 4 or 5 FFN tests done cause I could have sworn each time I was going into labor , it was horrible & I know the pelvic pressure your talking about , I used to swear that his head was like RIGHT there and it used to feel like his hand was sticking out or something cause I would get these weird awful pinching pains along with intense pressure....I hope you make it to at least 37 weeks or so :).....The end of pregnancy does suck though , I was horrible for the last 5 weeks or so , especially after being told over & over again I was going to go early and each week NO baby which was a good thing until about 37 weeks when I had enough LOL....Make sure to keep us posted on how things are going :)

Heidi ~ How are you & Brielle doing? Post an update when you get some time :) Would love to hear how you both are doing :)

Kati ~ I read your update on Daniel! Thanks so much for posting! He is such a handsome little guy!!!!...Sounds like you both are doing well which is great to hear :) Enjoy this time while ya can they grow up WAY to fast....Its scary

Princess & Krissy can you believe the babies are almost 9 months old , well I guess Ollie just hit the 9 month mark , Skye & Rylen will in the next week or so , Thats only 3 months from their 1st birthdays :( THATS SO SAD! Makes me want another one LOL....not for 3 years but even so :( I cant believe it goes by so fast , I could have sworn I was just on here telling everyone I got my BFP

Quick Update ~ We are doing well , DYING in this heat but doing well , its been over 30 degree's we've set temperature records from back in the 70's its INSANE! Its so hot omg....Poor Rylen , hes been sleeping in bed with me so we can both have the fan on us LOL....he hangs out day and night in his diaper cause its just TOO hot to do anything , we've been going to places like walmart & the mall where its somewhat air conditioned cause its just TOO hot to even be at home , Rob comes home the end of the month & hes gotta hook up our condo air conditioner , I didnt think it would be this hot so soon so we didnt bother to hook it up....Man alive its crazy , I cant even get dressed without being all gross and sweaty before I even get out the door LOL....Its lovely!.....Rylens a little monkey , talking up a storm , he says Dada and now Daddy and he says Mama , Hi and Whats that , hes furniture walking like crazy , getting braver and braver at standing on his own , he just learned how to sit down from standing and how to reach down & grab a toy and stand back up....he amazes me everyday....hes obsessed with everything that rolls or spins , balls , wheels on toys , its so cute , he sits on the floor totaly amazed at his toys that spin or have wheels , I love it!!.....We were playing peek a boo earlier and I had him laughing hysterically , He is the HARDEST kid to make laugh , we all know he can but he refuses most of the time , its weird...my friends baby is 5 months and he laughs all the time....Rylens so happy & smiley though it doesnt make sense why he wont laugh lol....Its super cute when he does though :) Anyways its Rylens bed time & I need to get some stuff done before I go to bed too.....Hope your all having a great week & I cant wait to hear how everyone is doing :)

oh, I can't even believe my luck this week. Angel teething and no sleeping, and Jake has larengitis and an ear infection.... he can't talk or if he does its a whisper , his cries or screams are horse sound and squeeks, and he has a nasty horse sounding cough.... my poor baby, but he seems happy and just loves to cuddle.... unfortunately Angel cries all day and none stop and today has only taken 2 naps, and they were both 10 minutes long.... she finally just fell asleep and its 11:15.... life will become less stressful right??? lol

Aww, I hope he starts sleeping through the night soon.... I know its so hard getting used to a new baby after your kids start sleeping through the night or something... kids never ending lol, that is why I am done... today has finally proven that to me, I don't want anymroe kids nope none lol

jamie i know the feeling of no sleep.... daniel doesnt sleep much either at night, 4 days old now and as soon as i lay him in his bassinet after feeding he is back up... ugh i saw each hour on the hour last night... not fun, but hey hopefully he will sleep soon.

teething isnt any fun, but thank goodness it only lasts a short time, just unfortunately that time frame varies from baby to baby...lol
